The Half Way Point

So, I am about 21 weeks along in my pregnancy.  About half way.
Time seems to fly.
I had been feeling quite gross for my first trimester.
Not terrible.  But, you know, gross.
Sometimes I have felt rather gross the whole pregnancy through.
And dead tired.
I usually don't feel the 2nd trimester "energy surge".
I am not sure if I am quite that energetic.
But, I just recently realized that I am feeling pretty darn good.
I feel a normal tired.
Most of the time, I don't feel gross.
I am not dealing with heartburn yet.
I don't have severe aches & pains.
I feel good.
I am now getting to the point where I can no longer sleep
in my modified tummy sleeping position.
I love sleeping on my tummy.
And, up until recently, I was just bending one leg a bit
to give my little tummy a knee up.
The tummy is too big.  It is not a good idea anymore.


Maybe REALLY big is a better way to describe the belly.

The baby is a girl, everyone.  Yes!  It's true!
That's what the ultrasound tech was sure of, when we went in last week.
It will be fun to have another lady around.
We are naming her Kendal Ruth.
We are starting to feel strong kicks.
We are getting to know her a bit;
& can't wait to see her in February.

Congratulations! My sister was named Kendall nearly 30 years ago, and she is now very happy that the name is becoming popular.

Congrats on the new little girl! I just love girls! I really like her name. So cute!

You look great! I love your hair. I hope and pray that you continue to feel good.

Okay, the one that you took makes your belly look tiny, and then the one that Peyton took makes it look huge!! I think it is in actuality somewhere in between those, you know- normal sized. :) You look great!!

I love that you're sharing your name - it's a great one. One of my best friends is a Kendel (only she spells it with 2 "e"s). So fun!

Julie - I remember Kendel!
